About Division 7 Roofing
It all began in 1979, when George Reiss was applying his expertise as a technical roof inspector, training and certifying roofing companies to do quality installations. He met Les Heinlen, the original founder, while training the Division 7 Roofing staff. He soon moved to the Columbus area and joined forces with Les as Superintendent. In 1982, George Reiss purchased the company and further advanced its vision to provide commercial roofing services with the highest level of excellence and integrity.  Division 7 Roofing grew as a pioneer in the field of heat-welded single ply and EPDM membrane roofing systems. Division 7 Roofing has an excellent reputation for providing high quality roof installations for over 30 years.  Our commitment to elevating the industry through our active participation in the NRCA, RT3, Hayne ESE Peer Groups, STG and other forward-thinking entities has continued to fuel our passion for commercial roofing as an industry.
